Over three million Spaniards have likely had Covid-19 – three times the current official estimate – Spanish PM Pedro Sanchez has claimed, calling for the reinstatement of anti-contagion measures with the “least economic impact.”

The official caseload in the country currently stands at 1.03 million – the sixth highest in the world and the biggest in Western Europe.

“We have to put in place the measures needed with the least economic impact. We must avoid at all cost going back to home confinements as we did in the spring,” Sanchez said at a press conference on Friday. “The next few weeks and months, now that we enter the winter, will be difficult, very difficult.” (RT)
